For the second quarter of 2015, non-GAAP net income was $53.3 million, or $1.05 per share, compared with $47.0 million, or $0.92 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 was $131.5 million, versus $67.0 million for the second quarter of 2014.
“As we continue to execute our strategy as One Zebra, demand globally in mobile computing, scanning and printing bolstered top-line sales growth for the quarter,” said Anders Gustafsson, Zebra’s CEO.
Net sales of $889.8 million, including a reduction of $4.4 million for a purchase accounting adjustment related to service contracts acquired with the Enterprise business, increased 208.5% from the comparable quarter a year ago. The Enterprise business acquired from Motorola Solutions accounted for $573.4 million of sales in the quarter, excluding the purchase accounting adjustment. Sales of legacy Zebra were $320.8 million, up 11.2% from $288.4 million in the second quarter of 2014. The effect of movements in foreign currency, net of hedges, reduced legacy Zebra sales by $9.7 million.
Gross margin for the second quarter of 2015 of 44.2% includes an increase to costs of sales associated with purchase accounting adjustments, costs associated with the rebranding of Motorola product, as well as other costs not expected to recur. Compared to the 49.3% gross margin in the second quarter of 2014, gross margin percentage also reflects a change in mix associated with the sale of Enterprise products which generally have a lower gross margin than pre-transaction Zebra products and the impact of foreign currency movements, net of hedges.
Debt repayments in the quarter were $80 million, bringing total year-to-date repayments to $130 million. As of July 4, 2015, the company had cash of $204.9 million, accounts receivable of $631.1 million, inventories of $404.5 million, and long-term debt of $3.0 billion.
The company expects net sales in the third quarter of 2015 to be within a range of $900 million to $930 million. This forecast reflects an expectation of year-over-year growth of 4% to 7% in constant currency, on an estimated historical basis. Adjusted EBITDA are forecast within a range of $135 million and $150 million.
